Mardi Gras. Fat Tuesday. Shrove Tuesday. Pancake Tuesday baby! It is the last hurrah before Lent. Wish I could say we partied like, well Catholics before Lent. But we didnt. It was mostly a normal day but with the fun addition of…
Mardi gras pancakes for breakfast! Ok so I needed a lot bit more food coloring but you get the idea. I’m not a chef. Obviously I’m not a food photog either. And yes we eat on fine China around here.
I was on the ball last night yall!
The mix was made, everything set out. I even whipped up some colored sugar. I know myself. And I don’t do mornings. Eggs and toast or maybe some (premixed) muffins are the extent of cooking that early in the day.
The sugar was for a super simple Kings Cake I had last minute thrown in the mix planned on. But we had to skip it since I don’t have yeast and we were not able to get to the store for the super long ingredients list of refrigerator cinnamon rolls. The driveway is still a sheet of ice. And I so wish I were kidding.
At least we have pretty scenery still!
So we will go into the Lenten season without a King Cake this year. And plan for extra yummyness at Easter. Now what to do with that colored sugar…
